's future right quick. >> -- tell me about obama's feature right quick. >> he wants to have a very free pass toward enactment. he would like to fix the fiscal stuff that is on the table even as we speak. i want to believe but i do not have any reason to believe that he would want part of his legacy to deal with the inequality in this country, the short sick that the middle-class and poor more than you have spoken about have been forgotten. they were given some degree of equity and held by our government. whether he is going to do it, i do not know. i would like to think that would be the big picture thing he would work on as well as winding down the road -- a war in afghanistan. tavis: since you are frank rich and i am interested in your opinion, we spent last night tom ricks.roo is there any fallout? >> i do not think there will be any political fallout. even if it happened before the election. if anything he is more admired by republicans than by democrats. it seems to be a personal feeling. it does not seem to involve benghazi. it is a weird story. we're still filling in the pieces. there
and over that he's willing to have some spending cuts. >> all right, keith. if you google obama and spending cuts, you're going to come up with a blank page. that's all i'll say. david webb, let me come back to you. one of the scary things about this besides the absence of spending cuts was the article on the front page of "the wall street journal" saying team obama wants a $1.6 trillion tax increase, more than twice what they negotiated with john boehner unsuccessfully over a year ago. are you willing to give the government $1.6 trillion of private money, and if you did, what in the hell would they do with it? that's the part i don't get. what would they do with all that money? >> not only that, but let me ask america this. where do you have the money to give to the government? if you want to tax the wealthy, then you tax money that goes to investment in businesses, in venture capital, investments that the wealthy take for the middle class. this government and this administration had a choice to make after the election. do you run center, play a clinton move or do you run hard
about the attack from the obama administration. >>> right now we want to know about traffic from sal. >> okay. things have gotten a lot busier and i have mentioned on 17th and vanness, it will be a tough area and it will be out for most of the area with those signal lights. let's look at 808 westbound, -- 880 westbound, no major problems, the commute looks good getting up to the toll plaza and it is backed up for a 10 to 15 minute tee lay and you will be waiting for a it until you make it on to the bridge. it gets better by the time you reach dublin. 880 looks good on fremont. >> let's go to steve. >>> that system needs something to bump it along and that system is coming out of the gulf of alaska. we start off not bad but the last couple of days have been really nice, lots of sun, a few mid-70s but that first system will change everything, not a lot. the second system will be colder and that arrives late saturday into early sunday morning. first one will be warm second one will be colder. 30s, 40s and 50s because of a breeze at napa airport. 50s at san francisco. cold for some, not
't question people's motives, you question their judgement. >> president obama has it right. if this criticism is to be made. it is judgement. i don't understand impuning the sinserity of ambassador rice. >> as somebody who operated with president clinton through a well publicized affair. this wasn't just about sex. or secrets being passed or anything else. should he have resigned? >> i don't question his decision. i don't think he should have been asked to resign. and i agree with general that we should look forward to a new chapter in his life. he is a great and courageous man with a personal weakness that many other men and women share. it is the pain and the pep al ti and he stood up to the line and said and did the right thing for him. but i don't think it was necessary for him to resign. >> i want to play you a comment toda of all things economic. let's watch this. >> i have never in those 60 years of managing money for all kinds of people come up with an idea and said i've got this terrific idea to make us some money and you say to me well i would do it and the tax rates are too high. i
. >> sean: all right. that was president obama earlier today in his first news conference in more than 8 months. joining me to help analyze the presser, somebody who is usually in the room, the author of the brand brand book, the outpost, the untold story of american valor. how are you? >> i'm great? >> i follow you on twitter. i love your tweets. i really live and breathe this, which i really like. i went through this with lindsay graham. i felt questions were not asked. you said between the first and second deigate -- debate, you said there was a general feeling in the romney campaign that the media was ready to right the -- write the obama comeback story. they feel as i do that there is an institutional bias. that's what they were saying to you. do you think that's true? >> this election, i didn't get as much of a general scheme because i was just focused on obama, as oppose to the the last campaign, where i hopped around a lot. so i don't know. i think that there are -- ways in which narratives take control and sometimes they're not fair. i mean, i think, just to give a nonpartisan e
think mccain -- right after obama was elected in 2008, mccain really extended an olive branch. he was very conciliatory with president obama. president obama campaigned a certain way in 2008, beat mccain talking about reaching across the aisle and didn't do that. so mccain from the get go was saying, hey, you said you were going to work across the aisle. now he's just calling him on the carp elt. no one is more outspoken than senator mccain. >> i want to talk about taxes and the fiscal cliff. the president said he wants taxes to go up on the well think. what's your thought here? what do you make of that? is he leaving room for negotiations on the deductions? >> well, not a whole lot richard. he was basically coming back with what the position had been earlier, using the $250,000 level. well, theoretically he's open to whatever possibility somebody ask come up with, but he cast doubt on that. the danger, i suppose, is that they reach some deal on some compromise on the bush tax rates, and then never do the tax reform that everybody agrees is needed to actually restructure the thing
right before that at that debate was president obama defending susan rice and hillary clinton directly, by their titles, and condemning as offensive mitt romney trying to say that that attack was being covered up or that the country was being misled about it. that is what we saw again today on full blast, at the president's first press conference after being re-elected. the beltway common wisdom on this is that president obama is picking a fight with his secretary of state nomination if he does pick susan rice for that position. and when the beltway accuses you of picking a fight, they always mean, oh, no, no, you shouldn't do that. but seeing the president up there talking about this today with such fire in the belly and seeing as he did that as well in the debate when the same subject came up, i think this may be something more than just picking a fight. there's plenty of reason to be angry, to be concerned about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. it is very much worth being angry about the people who carried out that attack, right? it is worth talking about. it's worth even
and president obama has it right if there was a criticism to be made, it was in the judgment in retrospect, but certainly, i don't understand impugn iing th sincerity for doing what ambassador rice is there to do and speaking what she was told to say. >> and someone who obviously operated with president clinton through a very well publicized affair, what do you make of general petraeus now that we have worked out that this is just about sex and not about secrets being passed or anything else, should he have resigned? >> well, it is his personal decision, and i don't question his decision. i personally don't think that he should have been asked to resign. it is not necessary for him to resign, and i agree with general kimmet that he should look forward to a next chapter in his life. he is a great and courageous man with a personal weakness that many people, men and women share, and in this case public humiliation and embarrassment is the pain and the penalty, and he stood up to the line and said and did the right thing for him, but no, i don't think that it was necessary for him to resign.
reiterated america's support for their right to defend themselves. >>> it was president obama's first news conference since being reelected, and it was personal. the cbs reporter daniel nottingham reports the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya has sparked a nasty political battle in washington. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> reporter: at his first news conference since his reelection, the president defended un ambassador susan rice. senators john mccain and lindsey graham say they will block her elevation to secretary of state because of comments she made days after the attack on the consulate in libya. >> for them to go after the un ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> reporter: arizona senator john mccain took exception >> i doubt that the families of these brave americans who were murdered would believe that we are "picking on" anyone. >> reporter: the president also addressed the fiscal cliff. one way to avoid it is to extend tax -- not to extend tax cut

gerriwillis.com for online question every weekday. surely right that obama couldn't have asked for anything more dramatic to get the american focus off of his libya debacle. it was only a few more days before the election and he milked hurricane sandy for all it's worth. and randy agrees. my heart goes out to people in the northeast. it's funny that i didn't see the president in iowa when they had a horrible weather a couple of years ago. people suffer there, too, but not important enough to make him the center of attention. joe from texas says as an insurance adjuster, insanity to one to explain just what kind of coverage the insured had to set the time they need help most. most people have no idea how their coverage works. they expected to be fixed, but sadly not all losses are covered. gerri commuted a great job. send us an e-mail at gerri@foxbussiness.com with your questions and comments. and an annual competition. the competent liars have five minutes to convince the judges with an untrue story. that is my "two cents more". that is it for tonight's "willis report." don't forget to catc
and headache relief. >>> right now president obama she hadding back to the white house after touring portions of new york that were hardest-hit by superstorm standee nearly three weeks ago. more than 100 deaths are blamed, and millions lost power with tens of thousands still in the dark. the president met with first responders and families this afternoon flanked by new york governor andrew cuomo, the state's two senators and his secretaries of housing and homeland security. >> people still need emergency help. they still need heat. they still need power. they still need food. they still need shelters. kids are still trying to figure out where they're going to go to school. so there's a lot of short-term immediate stuff that has to be dealt with, and we are going to make sure that we stay here as long as people need that immediate help. that's fema's primary task. >> also on hand this time around was new york city mayor bloomberg who didn't give the president a photo-op last time in town but gave him a post-storm re-election endorsement citing obama's position on climate charge. just yesterday
a thumb in barack obama's eye. but jonathan is completely right. he picked the wrong person here. susan rice had nothing to do with benghazi. but, look, the republicans are facing an electoral wipeout in the last election. they still want to oppose barack obama any way they can, but what's their excuse? because the american people have now chosen barack obama over the republican guy. so what do they do? they have to gin up a conspiracy, a scandal of some sort, something they can attach the word gate to. now it's benghazi-gate. >> ron, you got it. this is the big alternative universal view of their world view in which you don't know what color the sky is over there. but they believe that this is as big as watergate and although nixon got re-elected in '72, he will come down by '74 even though this guy won in '12, he will come down by '14 because of this big gate ron mentioned. they have it in their head this is big time. >> in 1997 after bill clinton got re-elected but before lewinsky, the republicans tried to do the same thing on chinese fund-raising. remember that? they spent the bette

[ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> cenk: all right, president obama was also asked about general petraeus and all the different scandals involved with him and general john allen, the c.i.a. and the military. during his press conference today here was his quick answer. >> obama: i have no evidence at this point. from what i've seen classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> cenk: in this case let's move on. i think the investigation into these generals is now getting to the absurd. to be fair i thought it was absurd from the first place. why are we digging into these people's e-mails because a couple of women sent e-mails to each other because they weren't happy with how much they were flirting with the general. this is insanity. i'm no feign of the general for policy reasons but why are we looking into their lives. paula broadwell, the one who had an affair with general petraeus, this is what is happening to her her. >> "abc news" has learned that paula broadwell who had the afireaffair with petraeus may hav
. >> all right. president barack obama there on staten island. the second visit to the region after superstorm sandy reiter e reiterating that the federal government will be there in the complete rebuilding of this region devastated by that storm. there he is with the governor of new york and also homeland security chief janet napolitano and senators chuck schumer also there as well as the new york city mayor michael bloomberg. you heard the president there also talking about poignant moment with the moore family and many people recall their two sons swept away and he talked about what's been a very emotional visit to the staten island area, but also a kind of reaffirms that resolve that the federal government will be there as best it can in the rebuilding process. our victor blackwell is there, also, in staten island outside of recovery center. so victor, give me an idea what the reception has been like for the president's second now visit, the first post-re-election there to staten island. >> reporter: well, i think the president today said what the people in the community wanted
from now four years ago, right after president obama was elected for the first time before he was inaugurated that operation cast led happen that killed more than 1000 palestinians? what do you see happening now? >> well, it brings back for many gazans the past led operation. many think, this is cast led 2. you can see it in the streets free of you walking the streets, people are rushing into the shops buying food. the gas stations, if not into, are very crowded with people trying to get as much fuel to run their electricity. as we speak right now, i do not have electricity so we have to rely on a generator in order to work. i see this situation -- it is not going to be sought any time soon. the egyptians will have to find another palestinian for whom they can talk to. i really do not see the egyptians will be able to succeed to contact anyone from the hamas leaders. given the fact even journalists who are in gaza city cannot reach the hamas leaders because they're all underground and not reachable by their phones. there is no way to deliver the message about a cease-fire or t
bloomberg who endorsed president obama the very day that he visited this area the first time right after the storm and before the election. we wanted to bring that to you. in the meantime, we're following breaking news out of tell aaviv where warning sirens have been b blaring in response to bombs. they're mobilized tanks and personnel to the gaza border. the israeli military says they have not ruled out a ground assault on the palestinian territory. three israelis were killed today when a rocket fired from the gaza strip hit they are apartment. the israeli defense force says more than 100 rockets have been fired into southern israel in just the past 24 hours. palestinians all fired a long-range missile today that landed just 12 miles from tel aviv. in gaza today hundreds of palestinians attended the funeral of a hamas military chief who was killed yesterday in a targeted attack. the israeli government has claimed credit for this incident, even posted video of the air strike at the precise time that it went down. it took to twitter to warn other hamas leaders to not go above ground in th
obama spoke with prime minister netanyahu about the escalating violence st stressing israel has a right to defend itself and urging him to make every effort to avoid casualties. amin, we saw that air strike, and a lot of people believe that was the moment this all escalated. the escalation and we've seen ebbs and flows but about ten days ago is when we saw a significant turn perhaps. >> reporter: that's correct. there are two very competing narratives about what happened. from the israeli perspective they say they've been suffering over the course of the last ten days and really over the last several years indiscriminate rocket fire into southern israel frchlt a palestinian perspective, a different story. the 1.5 million lives here say they live under siege and subjected to random air strikes against israel and also skirmishes across the border between gaza and israel, including one that killed a 13-year-old palestinian boy. that led to the latest round of violence with palestinian militants then firing rockets by the hundreds into southern israel killing three two. palestinian will say
and mourdock had said what they said in completely different ways, all right, we wouldn't have had the backlash we had. eleanor pointed this out -- women delivered obama's race because they weren't about to put up from the nonsense that was coming from the right. >> with the statements from mourdock and akin, women wanted romney to denounce it. women wanted the party to denounce it, and romney never came out to denounce it. bottom line is this -- we played it too safe, we didn't think women were monolithic voters or cared about the economy, but when it comes to legitimate rape and abortion, women stood together. >> i wish that's all it was, really, but the whole year, particularly when republicans took over so many state legislators, that's when the war on women, if you forgive me, began. you had record numbers of anti-contraceptive and and antiabortion laws, even a tax on equal pay laws, the congress with the blunt amendment on where they actually had a vote on whether or not insurance policies ought to include contraception if the boss is in disagreement. so you can talk messenger all you wan
